I had a very nice stay at this B&B. The location was great. About a two minute walk to all the pubs and restaurants. The breakfast was ok, but the room itself was very nice and I was happy that there was a safe in the room.

We stayed 4 nights at Abbey lodge and had a pleasant trip. The place is borderline b&b but you get a private bathroom. We only at breakfast once but it was good if a bit pricey. Nice bed but the best part was the silent atmosphere. Close enough to downtown to walk to pubs and shopping (10 mins).

The owner was so warm and welcoming to my boyfriend and I during our 3-day stay here last week. She was very accommodating and helpful, and assisted us in booking a tour around the Ring of Kerry (highly recommended!). The tour has an added benefit of having a shuttle bus that picks you up right in front of the B&B... More

One of the first things that strikes you upon check in is the helpfulness of the staff. Beside the usual access to the room, they made recommendations regarding tours and upcoming events. When we indicated our tour selection was made in advance, they said they'd call ahead to confirm if we chose. The breakfast selection was a contributing factor in... More

The first room we were taken to had a terrible musty smell about it and was on the ground floor facing the alley. I requested to be moved due to allergies and they were very accommodating moving us to the second floor facing the opposite side. The view from the room is nothing to be excited about as it looks...

We stopped here while passing through town. The staff was kind enough to work with us on arrival time as we had mistakenly printed directions to the Abbey Court Lodge in Kenmare. We did enjoy a nearly empty Ring of Kerry drive back at dusk. The room was nice enough, beds reasonably comfortable, and bathroom 'appeared' clean. However, after having... More

I was so impressed with Abbey Lodge especially the breakfast. On check in we were shown to our room by the friendliest girl on reception making us feel very comfortable. Our room was very spacious and very nicely decorated. The location was perfect as it was only a stroll into killarney where we were meeting friends. The next morning we... More

A friend and I (30 yrs old) stayed two nights here while in Killarney. What a wonderful experience! This place is truly a gem. The location could NOT be better - you are 2 minutes from the center of town, and there is a gas station right across the street that not only has a small deli, but a wine... More

Comfortable, relaxing, friendly. Three words that describes my thoughts of Abbey Lodge. The owner was pleasant and friendly, serving an Irish breakfast each morning and greeting the guest.. The rooms were beautiful with TV and internet service. I even left my cell phone there by accident and they returned it with no problem! I would stay here every time that... More
